Sadly, it’s DC Comics themselves you have to convince.

I mean I really don’t consider Catwoman a super villain. I see her more as a anti-hero. Like Deadpool for example. Yeah he does bad stuff but he also does some good from time to time.

The point (the good point) with Superman is that he recognizes himself as an american citicen. And he is a real patriot with a better understanding of the word than most americans: he sees him as a citicen of this world too and understands that fighting (blindly) only for America is never good for anyone, not USA nor the World. He does what is needed to help everyone even if it means to stand against his President and government. It doesn’t matter if it’s a super-duty or his favourite job, as a journalist. He wants to help regardless who, where… Read more »
